2-In-1 Toy with Sound Effects
When opened up, this amazing 2-in-1 toy instantly becomes Darth Vader–wielding weapons, warriors and the force to do battle against the Rebel Alliance. With some crafty reconstruction, however, this fearsome figure becomes the equally evil, planet-destroying Death Star.
As the battle station, the toy features compartments from which TIE fighter aircrafts can fly, and in which miniature figures and Vader’s detachable cape can be stored. For fighting on a smaller scale, the toy comes with three fighter planes seven “mini-figs” include and 1-inch tall versions of Darth Vader and three Storm Troopers. A translucent green missile launches from an opening in the Death Star as well as from Darth Vader’s gun. Of course, Vader wouldn’t be complete without his signature red Lightsaber, which generates realistic Lightsaber sound when placed in his right hand. Another button on the figure’s stomach prompts famous Vader lines from the Star Wars movies.
Transforms In 25 Steps
Stars Wars and Transformers fans alike will enjoy the challenge of reconfiguring the Deluxe Death Star. It takes 25 steps to transform Darth Vader into the Death Star (and vice versa). For the first few times you take these steps, we highly recommend that you use the easy-to-follow visual instructions in the booklet — otherwise, you might be doing a lot of back-tracking, which can be frustrating. After you’ve mastered the moves a few times, transforming this vehicle and figure will be a breeze.
While Darth Vader’s black plastic body is sturdy, the Death Star shell is thinner, lighter and more fragile with many pivoting and rotating pieces. In general, this toy should be treated with more care than most other “boy toys.” The Deluxe Death Star is fun for young kids and grown-up kids, but with small parts that could be choking hazard, it should be kept away from children under three years old.
